On Monday, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden gave yet another gaffe-laden speech, this time in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Unfortunately for him, however, this quickly backfired when social media exploded with users finally admitting that something may be wrong with Biden.
While Biden made many mistakes in his speech, one excerpt in particular went viral, with users saying that it went way beyond him “stumbling over words.”
In the clip, Biden said, “COVID has taken this year — just since the outbreak — has taken 100 year. Look, here’s…the lives…it’s just…I mean, think about it. More lives this year than any other year for the past 100 years.”
The clip was tweeted out by the president’s son, Eric Trump, who captioned it, “This is why the Biden campaign doesn’t want him to leave his basement — this guy isn’t playing with a full deck and it is so irresponsible that the media covers this up…”

It didn’t take long for the clip to go viral.
“OMG. This isn’t a mispronunciation or stumbling over a few words. This is really bad,” tweeted Republican activist Brandon Straka, a former liberal and co-founder of the WalkAway movement.

Others had similar reactions to the video.
“It’s dementia. I’ve seen it up close, as a lot of us have, sadly. I can’t understand why Jill Biden is allowing this to continue,” one user asserted, with another adding, “Would anyone let this man handle their checkbook. He is incapacitated. I really don’t think he will make it to the election. His family needs to stop this. It’s truly sad.”
“It’s even worse when you see it written down…” a third person said. A fourth wrote, “Slip ups are funny but this is watching someone struggle. I just can’t see how he could do a debate at this point.”
Democrats have been trying to hide Biden as much as possible over the past few months. This video makes it clear exactly why they are doing that.
